New Monthly Arabic Entrepreneur Magazine In MENA Region
The original English language Entrepreneur magazine celebrated its 31st anniversary in May 2008.
The magazine’s focus on the entrepreneurial market has made it one of the leading resources for starting and growing businesses.
The new Arabic edition is published under license from Entrepreneur Media Inc. by Sawahel Al-Jazeera ltd. a publishing and advertising agency based in Riyadh, KSA, and will be distributed in all Arabic language countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
Johara Aletaishan, Chairperson of the new magazine, said:
“The aim of our new magazine is to promote the entrepreneurship culture among youth in the MENA region.
We want it to be an interactive magazine which links not only the editors to the readers but also reader to reader in the region to promote business activities.
The New Magazine “Entrepreneur –MENA” will cover all the topics which may be of interest to the entrepreneurs.”
Neil Perlman, President of Entrepreneur Media Inc. – said :
“Entrepreneurial leaders drive economic success for themselves and their respective communities, and we’re pleased the first issue of Entrepreneur – MENA will carry this message to the region’s Arabic language countries. It’s invaluable for us to have the magazine’s message translated by Sawahel Al-Jazeera Ltd. to support young leaders in their entrepreneurial pursuits.”
From the titles shown on the cover of the first edition, it looks like it will be bringing some really useful content to entrepreneurs in the Arab region; with some local content, and some translated material; one thing I hope they’ve taken into consideration though is to not just translate some of the business articles as is, but to take the Arab business environment and context into consideration, and try to adapt these articles to the region.
